nature is making up for last year. >> a powerful pump tonch to a r still recovering from superstorm sandy, which struck just over three months ago. it will take a while to dig out from this the plows out, making progress. but a really tough go right now. i don't see anybody out on the streets any time soon here. >> jay gray, have you the mask up. how much is the wind coming at you? i know you get a sand facial sometimes if you are down by the beach. how does this feel? >> the same. in fact, last night and into early morning this morning, it was very rough. hurricane-force winds, and the snow just pounding. we're getting a break. in fact, i'll take a chance here alex. it's me, see. not as strong as it has been, but it comes in waves and when i pull the mask off, we get a burst of wind, but it's coming in waves, going to continue. blizzard warning stretched to 1:00. we'll see conditions for a while yet. >> listen, i appreciate you taking it off and showing us. but you can put it back up, that's okay. doesn't look pleasant there. >> bye-bye. >> thank you so much. >>> we talked about power ou
attention after superstorm sandy and working with the president. his reaction to people giving advice about his weight and what he could do, he is kind of a hot head about it, and the temperament might not be there. >> right. not always. i mean, i guess he was on "letterman" on monday and talked about it there. on tuesday he was sort of intro spektive about it, and the comments he made, his office then put it on youtube, and then by wednesday possibly when it got to the third day of talking about this, i think at that point he had sort of had enough. >> certainly it's very personal to have to go through something like that. not public. unfortunately, he is a public figure. the questions come up. michael, it's great to see you. thank you for being patient with me this morning. i appreciate it. >> all right, that's going to wrap things up for me today. i appreciate your time. we're going to be back on monday at 11:00 a.m. eastern, but don't go anywhere. "now with alex wagner" is coming up next. alex, still apocalypse to cover or something else? >> all snow-pocalypse for the next hour. we have
the coast is targeting many of the same residents who are still trying to recover from superstorm sandy just a little more than three months ago. in new york congressman peter king serves on the house homeland security committee and joins me now from long island. well, congressman, your community took such a heavy hit. how are you bracing for this storm? >> everything that can be done is being done, and sussex county is pulley mobilized. new york city is fully mobilized. one of the dangers we have, though, is many of peemt are living in homes that are still partially destroyed. this he may be living in the top floor of a two-story house with a bottom half of the basement destroyed. also, the shoreline has been dramatically weakened. even though the surges won't be as great as they were during sandy, it will be much harder to resist because of the shore lien that's been de stated so badly. we're hoping for the best. i guess one advantage is ok a friday night and into saturday at least the -- you know, the crews will be able to go out without worrying too much about traffic being in the way. y
about doing something about greenhouse gases, haven't the storms, superstorm sandy, irene last year, haven't all of these recent storms and the fluctuations in temperature taught us if nothing else, that we have a real climate problem and that we have to deal with this here even if the rest of the world isn't going to deal with it in china and elsewhere? >> when you say i'm talking about drilling, think about what we're drilling for right now. think about where the boom is in this country. it's with natural gas. in order to access that natural gas, you do have to drill. what it has yaelded this country is an abundance of a resource that they read. it's able to bring our cost down and able to bring about jobs and economic opportunity that we wouldn't have had. how do we pay for the damage caused by a sandy? how do we move towards that next generation of technology if we don't have the resources that we need? we can gain those through our own domestic production and we can put revenues towards a renewable manager deployment fund, towards mitigating some of what we are seeing from impa
as they were with superstorm sandy. listen to home depot customer rick martinez. >> if the power goes down, my -- i have hot air. that will not work. i have small children. that is my biggest concern. >> gas tanks. filling up the tank for the snow blower. plan on using it this evening. >> reporter: he certainly will be using that snow blower. good news for him is he didn't need one coming in to the storm. it is out of snow blowers, generators. it is also out of gasoline cans. all of that can be related back to sandy. think about generators. typically bought before a hurricane. it is different this time. so many people left without power after sandy so a lot of people coming in here. they sold 50-plus generators in 24 hours, alone and earlier sold out of salt and that ice melt. they just got a couple of palettes in. people came right over. they took about half of the palettes away and still demand for that. rest of the stuff, you're out of luck in hackensack. back to you. >> mary thompson, thank you. i think we have someone on the phone that knows a thing or two about the cancelations and delay
. >> reporter: a region still recovering from superstorm sandy which just struck over three months ago. i know you can see the lights on behind me, or i hope you can through the snow. what i tell you, the power in the core of downtown is still on and that likely won't be a problem, because much of the infrastructure here is buried, but across the region and across new england, and i know you've been talking about this, more than 600,000 people without power, that number will likely climb as the accumulation numbers climb throughout the day. >> absolutely. jay, i think massachusetts has been hit the hardest with power outages, 404,000 people out. it's more than 600,000 across new england. i want to ask you about the roads. we got word from governor malloy, all connecticut roads closed until further notice. has there been plow work where you are there in boston, or just don't even bother until it's all over yet? >> reporter: no, what's amazing, alex, there are plows out right now and are people trying to work. i wouldn't say that they are making a ton of progress, because the snow is coming too
